    Native women have been put, by many people, in such a class - different from the majority group, therefore often relegated to lesser value than other groups of human beings. And the result is that they are among the most abused group of people.

    The recent Indian Market in Santa Fe had a focus on "missing and murdered indigenous women," inviting artists to honor these women through their work and advertising national hotline numbers for anyone who needs help.

    This crisis has been going on for a long time, mostly under the radar.

    American Indian women face murder rates more than 10 times the national average, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. Homicide is the third leading cause of death among women 10-24 years of age, and the fifth leading cause of death for American Indian and Alaska Native women between 25 and 34, based on data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    And 4 of 5 Native American women are affected by violence right now, according to Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women. (See CSVANW.org.)

    At least there are people advocating for the missing and unidentified Native Americans and the so called aborginals in Canada, that's positive, but only to replace what's not done by the goverment.

    Shame on you America and Canada goverment for letting them down!!!
